EUIPO and Accountancy Europe join to support SMEs Joint cooperation

The European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and Accountancy Europe have come together to provide guidance and promote the benefits of Intellectual Property (IP) registration to SMEs.

With this collaboration agreement, both organisations aim to unite forces and create synergies in the benefit of SMEs. This agreement covers activities such as joint webinars and promoting training modules on Intellectual Property among SMEs.

Professional accountants are in direct contact with SMEs. They are in an ideal position to promote the importance of IP rights (trademarks, patents, designs, etc.) at the right moment in the SME business lifecycle. Accountancy Europe member bodies will benefit from the knowledge, tools and resources on IP which will allow them to point their SME clients in the right direction on IP matters.

The EUIPO is the European agency responsible for managing registrations of the EU trade mark and the registered Community design valid in all EU member states. As part of its Strategic Plan 2025, the SME Programme under the Ideas Powered for business’ brand aims to support and empower SMEs on their business journey.
